The paper presents the ongoing-research to apply a pattern-based approach for Lithuanian which can help to automatically extract term-defining contexts from a specialized corpus of education and science. The stages of research include analysis of constituting elements in definitional patterns; formalization of definitional patterns; automatic extraction of term-defining contexts. The first evaluation shows that despite the relatively low frequency of term-defining contexts, their quality can be high enough to serve as a starting point for definitions.
